Deer Jet Airlines of Beijing has taken delivery of the third of four Boeing Business Jets.

"We've been so pleased with the comfort and performance of our first BBJ, we're thrilled to take delivery of our newest airplane," said Zhang Zhi, president of Deer Jet Airlines.

"Fifteen years after entering the business jet market as a bit of a niche player, Boeing Business Jets has grown to be an industry leader," said Steve Taylor, BBJ president. "We offer more space, more comfort and more utility than any of the traditional business jet manufacturers and back it up with some of the industry's best reliability and product support."

Boeing and General Electric launched the joint venture in July 1996 with the BBJ, a 737-700 modified for corporate and VIP applications. As the demand for even larger business jets grew, so did BBJ.

"We're building on our terrific brand with our newest twin-aisle products, the 787 VIP and 747-8 Intercontinental VIP," Taylor added.

BBJ and VIP sales have far exceeded expectations. In total, the program has booked orders for 205 airplanes and delivered 168, including this latest one to Deer Jet.
